Back in April we saw a trailer for Godzilla Resurgence, the latest movie from the creator of the Godzilla franchise, Toho. It’s the studio’s 29th entry in the series, and their first in 12 years.

The first trailer clocked in at about a minute and a half and featured various clips from the movie set to music. No dialogue. This new trailer is basically the same thing, though with different footage and music.

Click on over to the other side now to check out the trailer.

A new trailer has been released for Godzilla Resurgence, the latest in the long-running kaiju series produced and distributed by its original creator, Toho.

The movie is the 31st Godzilla movie overall, and the 29th from Toho. The other two were the 1998 and 2014 Hollywood productions. It is Toho’s first new entry in the series in 12 years (the last being Godzilla: Final Wars in 2004) and, much like the aforementioned 2014 American movie, acts as a reboot of the franchise. Toho saw how successful the Hollywood effort was—which has led to the development of a shared monster universe including the planned movies Kong: Skull Island, Godzilla 2, and the ultimate big bad beastie showdown, Godzilla vs. King Kong—and made the excellent decision to do their own reboot. There’s no such thing as too many monster movies.

You can see how Toho’s new Godzilla flick looks in the trailer below along with a poster for the movie.

Movie Review: Godzilla (2014)

Adam Frazier reviews Gareth Edwards' GODZILLA
Godzilla
Director: Gareth Edwards
Writers: Max Borenstein (screenplay), Dave Callaham (story)
Cast: Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, David Strathairn
Legendary Pictures | Warner Bros.
Rated PG-13 | 123 Minutes
Release Date: May 16, 2013

“We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad Gita; Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and, to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, ‘Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.’ I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.”

– J. Robert Oppenheimer

In 1954, IshirĊ Honda transformed the trauma of war into art with Godzilla, a science fiction film about a gigantic radioactive beast that rises from the depths of Tokyo Bay. The primordial force of nature firebombs Tokyo with its atomic breath, leveling the city and killing thousands. Honda created a walking metaphor for the nuclear devastation of World War II – a fantastic, out of this world creation that could embody the fears of an entire nation.

Godzilla is the granddaddy of kaiju cinema, but it’s also a very poignant and mournful drama – a Japanese film made at a time when the country was still reeling from the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, as well as H-bomb testing in the Pacific. Since then, Godzilla has become an international icon of devastation, spawning nearly thirty sequels. The King of Monsters endures because he is the perfect conduit through which to exorcise the predominant fears of our time.

‘Godzilla, King Of The Monsters 3-D’: The U.S. Godzilla Movie That Was Never Made

BAADASSSSS!   |

Godzilla

It’s taken decades for Japan’s time-honored kaiju genre of cinema to properly invade American shores, but with Guillermo del Toro’s futuristic fantasy epic Pacific Rim set to tear the box office limb from limb in July and Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla movie tentatively set for next May the thirst for giant monsters and robots consuming mass quantities of wanton destruction has rarely been greater. Next year’s Godzilla adventure won’t be the first time the scaly radioactive giant lizard first immortalized in 1954’s Gojira (released here two years later as Godzilla: King of the Monsters) has undergone the Hollywood blockbuster treatment…unless you choose to not acknowledge Roland Emmerich’s stillborn 1998 attempt as many of us have already done.

The first major attempt to make an American Godzilla movie took place in the early 1980’s, and had it happened it would have united some of the greatest artists in the fields of feature film special effects, make-up, and conceptual art that the world of fantastic cinema ever birthed into popular culture. In 1982 Steve Miner, best known as the director of Friday the 13th Parts II and III and Halloween: H20, made a deal with Godzilla’s home studio Toho to bring the big G to the U.S. in a grand-scale motion picture as befitting a creature of his stature and cultural impact: Godzilla, King of the Monsters 3-D!
